ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS: H&K SP5 like Die Hard's John McClane

Once we all become adults, Christmas begins to mean a lot less to us and is more about what we can give to others. We start families, have children, work relationships, business acquaintances, and endless others we hunt down gifts for. It is not like when we were children and fully expected an evergreen tree overflowing with gifts for us on Christmas morning. What if we could flip the script even for one year though?… If I could jump on the Fatman’s lap one more time and plead my case for toys beyond my budget I already know what would be on my short-list. All I want for Christmas is an H&K SP5 SBR similar to the MP5 John McClane ran around with on Die Hard (a classic Christmas tale, mind you). Also, one of Springfield Armory’s new Model 2020 Waypoint rifles and my 1st PVS-14 monocular to begin my journey down the night vision rabbit hole.

Not everyone can afford them and some just don’t like Glocks or in this case the PVS-14. In this article, we will be comparing the housings of these PVS-14 Alternatives to the PVS-14. Night vision devices can be thought of like a precision bolt gun. The image intensifier tube is the barreled action. The glass on night vision is your optic on said bolt gun.
